Watched the Ravens / Bengals last night opening MNF. They look every part the same team that went to the AFCC last season. Flacco looks practically Rogers-esque on the bootlegs and play action. Cincy really had no answer for him when he was throwing on the move. Ray Rice is supposedly getting limited touches (I guess to preserve him for postseason) but he was still quite evidently a top 3 running back. There were so many odious moments while watching the game though... so much typical Ravens BS. Every non-complete Flacco throw had the whole stadium incredulous when there was no flag. Harbaugh called a bleepin timeout to yell at the refs who called roughing the passer when Webb pretty clearly put his helmet into Dalton's spine. All in all the Ravens looked like great front runners who played with attitude and fed off their home crowd to really seize the game in the 3rd quarter. It'll be a very interesting thing to watch when the Ravens have to deal with a bit of adversity to their gameplan. I was also left wondering how the hell Marvin Lewis maintains his employment. The moment he called the kicking squad out on 4th-1 from the 1 or 2 yard line to shrink a 17-10 margin to 17-13, I felt like the TMQ and noted "this is the moment when Lewis is playing not to win, but to not lose by a lot." Of course from that moment on the Ravens completely dominated.
